COLUMBIA, S. C.
Friday horning, August 19,1870.
Progresa ot Ibo PrnMlnn Arms.
With a resistless force as silent and as
crashing as the oouse of destiny, Prussia
continues her march to Paris. The New
York Twines asserts that tho "best possi?
ble position on tho Moselle" has been as
completely driven iu as the frontier line
between Saarbruck aud Woissenburg,
and the invader is another stage nearer
to the capital of France. The news of
tho evacuation of Metz may be prema?
ture, but cut off as it now is from all
communication with Paris, and left, as it
must necessarily bo, to tho defence of a
garrison inadequate to its vast require?
ments, its capitulation can only bc a
question of time, and its importance as
a bulwark against tho conquerors is
thoroughly neutralized. About tho
evaouation of Nancy, thero can bo no
question, and it is quito clear that the
300;000 men lately stationed on the Mo?
selle have effected a retreat to the line of
thc Meuse,, or twenty miles further back.
The slownoss with which news travels iu
the present struggle is beyond all prece?
dent. Nancy was entered on Friday,
and we were not in possession of the
fact until an interval of two days. The
battles of T7oerth and Saarbruck wero
fought ten days ago, and we arc only
now bqginniug to appreciate their magni?
tude, in. view of their results. First,
the possession of Alsace was yielded up
without further struggle; then the passes
of the Vosges wore tardily admitted to
bo the property Qb the enemy, and now
the ancient province of Lorraine, thc
duchy pf Lothaire, is all but overrun by
the Prussian troops. That all this has
boen abandoned while two-thirds of the
French army have not yet faced the
enemy, speaks volumes for Prussian
strategy and prowess, as well os for their
overwhelming numerical strength.
Previo as reverses have made Paris
calmer but not less defiant. It remains
to be seen whether the latest and most
fatal yet of all the evidences of weakness
which France has displayed in the course
of the struggle, will leave her confidence
unshaken. There is a feverish and des?
perate energy in the. statemout, "the
hour approaches when tho enemy will
be chased from the laud," that in spite
of its incongruity with existing circum?
stances, lends it a sort of tragic pathos.
Thore aro still three lines of defence to
be passed before reaching tho gates of
Paris, but who can toll whether the
Emperor will be prepared to make a
stand either in the valley of tho Meuse,
on the wood-studded plateau of the
Argounes, or amid the plains of ceutral
Fruuco, watered by tho Aisne, the Marue
aud the Seiue. At ouo or other of
these poiuts a stand must be made; but
the conviction that another battle must
equally decide a contest, which, so furas
its original purpose is ? concerned, is
already practically ended, will render the
French commanders doubly cautious in
their selection both of time and place.
Their most highly trained troops have
been proved incapable of standing be?
fore thc weight of the Prussian onset;
they may, therefore, reasonably hesitate
beforo bringing into action an army
reinforced by raw levies from Paris, aud
untried soldiers from Chalons. To en?
gage the Prussians by sections becomes
daily moro impossible. Their contracted
wedge-like front is now confined within
a spaco of about twenty miles, aud their
three great divisions ovideutly advance
with a perfect unity of plan and direc?
tion. The capture of Strasburg, which
appears imminent, has assumed the
character of a mere episode of the cam?
paign, just as that of Meta may do, uow
that it is complete^' isolated from its
base of supplies. The demonstration of
the fleet in the Baltic comes all too late to
turn the desperate fortunes of the Em?
The French Government is justified iu
the boast that the internal dissensions
on which the Prussians may have reck?
oned do not exist. But while meu of all
shades of politics vio with each other in
making sacrifices, unparalleled iu recent
European history, for tho preservation
of their common country, there is au
omiuous under-tone of dissatisfaction
that bodes ill for the futuro of the dy?
nasty. When tho war was declared, the
spectators in tho gallery of tho Chamber
of Deputies uuited in tho spontaneous
outburst of cuthusiasm which greeted
the announcement of tho Emperor's de?
termination to fight. The applause is
uow reserved for thoso who counsel stead?
fast resistance to tho advancing foe, but
who alio propose to erect another su?
preme power us a counterpoise to, aud
a possible judgo of, the Emperor. When
that deep d?termination which now ex?
ists to repair recent defeats finds an op?
portunity to transfer itself to thoso who
will be accused of causing them, there
will be an account demanded of the
ruler of France, which may not be as
bloody as that demanded of Louis XVI,
but will certainly be as steru aud as dif?
ficult to Batisfy.

MOST INFAMOUS AND LAWLESS CON?
DUCT.-Tho Edgefield Advertise}- com?

the so-called colored soldiers stationed in
that town, and says:
Tho dastardly habit these black mili?
tiamen indulge themselves iu, of darting
out in full forco upon white meu, pell

fane, blaspheming, insulting, blood?

thorities who are hero to command them
canuot do so moro effectually, then the
white citizons of this community must
prepare for their defence. These militia?
men wait not to bo callod upon; they
seem to bo amenable to no orders. They
have not the remotest idea of tho con?
duct and duties of a soldier. And yet
they aro soldiers, ond wo are paying
thom for soldiering it over us. Each
ono of them makes auy little quibble
that may come uuder the notice of the
town marshal, his own private and per?
sonal affair.. If tho marshal is resisted
or cursed, each one teems to fancy him?
self personally insulted. Tho offending
white man is seized, dragged, pushed,
kicked into the jail, by a crowd of fierce,
tumultuous, unrestrained negroes. Each
one raves aud rants on bis own responsi?
bility. Eo.oh ono brandishes a weapon
of some sort. Each one rends the air
with unheard-of blasphemy. Eaoh and
all of tho friends of the offending white
man are gratuitously dared to como for?
ward and be shot like dogs.
Why are these negroes not bettor in?
structed ia their duty as soldiers? Why
is it not impressed upon their minds
that they should do their duty, aud no
more. I)o their duty, acting under or?

NANCY.-Tho city of Nancy, occupied
by tho Prussians on Friday, aud about
which so much has been said in our
foreigu despatches, is located on a branch
of tho Meurthe River, and is one of the
linost and best built places iu France.
Tho railroad running from Strasburg to
Paris passes through tho place, and the
Prussians iu occupying it sever nil rail
communient iou between Metz aud Paris,
except by the roundabout way of tho
Belgium border.- Nancy was takeu in
1475 by Charles tho Bold, who was
killed before its walls. lu 1G34 it was
agaiu takeu by Louis XIII. Its citadel
is still preserved, but its fortifications
were razed by Louis XIV. Its popula?
tion ranges between 40,000 and 50,000.
A private letter from Berliu gives au
amusing account of tho helter-skelter
man ncr iu which the tourists tried to
getaway from tho wateriug-places, aud
of their bewilderment wheu they fonud
that the railways were mouopolized by
tho Government. People stood all day
long and waited, trytug for tickets,
standing from morning till evening
without being able even to reach tho
ticket-offices for tho rush. In ono place
400 trunks wore left, with all the brilliant
summer toilets, and silks, aud laces, aud
jewels. Imagine tho dismay of the fair
owucrs of all these brilliant toilcst at
being obliged to abandon them.
REFORM IS NOT TREASON.-We under?
stand that tho Uniou Leagues have pro?
nounced it treason for auy of their mem?
bers to support tho candidates of the
Uniou Reform. This wo coutider all
nonsense; for tho friends of reform have
never scrupled to nominate Republicans
whom they considered honest. Now, if
the League objects to honost Republi?
cans for office, the inevitable inference
must bo that they waut dishonest Repub?
licans. Union Leaguers aro therefore
placed iu this dilemma: They must either
oppose honesty iu o?lico pr acknowledge
that League-membership-uot honesty

THE Mon. >r.rry OF THE CITY.-Tho
mortality statistics of the past week are
uot vei'3* encouraging. Owing, no doubt,
to the intenso heat, and its deadly effect
upon children especially, there wns au
increase of deaths in tho city over tho
victims of the preceding week. Thc
total number o? deaths up to Saturday
\va:> 710. lu tho sumo period there were
only 28C births-not much moro than
I one-third tho uuuiber of persons boru to
thoso who died. This seems to bo u slow
increase compared with tho decay, and
suggests thc question, ?what should we
do for population if it were not for im?
migration?-Sew York Herald.
